#4 – Give Fasting A Try
Fasting — the periods of going on without food — has been an integral part of human history for thousands of years.
It’s woven into most world religions, mainly due to its beneficial effects on human health and performance.
Fasting started gaining massive popularity worldwide at the beginning of this millennium as a way to slim down, lower insulin resistance, and boost cognitive performance.
One of its main proven benefits is improving neurological disorders and reducing inflammation.
Inflammation hampers the exchange between the neurons and energy production in them, which leads to the slowing down of the brain.
This translates as feeling sluggish, slow, dull, and unable to focus.
Many individuals who practice intermittent or prolonged fasting report heightened clarity, faster thinking, mental sharpness, and increased concentration as some of the most significant benefits#
3 – Break A Sweat
Regular aerobic exercise has shown to expand the hippocampus — the part of our brain in charge of learning and visual memory, particularly prone to aging’s adverse impacts.
Developing a sustainable exercise routine is of value to anyone looking to boost their cognitive functions.
Working out has multiple proven cognitive benefits: it improves memory and boosts thinking, reduces dementia risk — at any age and enhances the blood flow to the brain.
Making meditation and yoga a part of your daily routine also helps your body relax and calms your mind.
